Curtailments regretfully compiled

Board to consider budget cuts P alomar will s lash its· budget, reduce c urriculum1 and service s , and reduce several functions unless increased tax funds are available next year. A tentative budget accompanied by a list of cutbacks was subm itted to the Boa rd of Gove r nors Tuesday night. The budget will be considered for use beginning July lJunless a 19-centtaxove rride is voted in by the district at the June 4, election. The tentative budget was based on revenue in sight and was reduced to $276,000, only four per cent above this year, in spite of the 10 to 18 per cent enrollment increase expected in the fall. A 20 per cent en r o 11m en t increase occured last September. Requests for normal operations and main te na nc e of present academic standards totaled $3,718,000 in the tentative report, up approximately 18 per cent over the current budget of $3,150,839. College officials explained that the $3,276,000 figure meant that unavoidable inconveniences will result forstudentsand their families, that courses will have to be discontinued. and community service programs drastically reduced. Administration spokesmen stated that the curt a i 1m en t s were "regretfully" compiled to meet the emergency that will confront operational procedures in September unless the tax is voted in by the district citizens. A dozen tentative cutbacks were listed: !)Adult Education class will be reduced about 70 per cent, from 88 to 28. ..2) Some sections of regular day classes for credit students will have to be s c heduled at night in the place of the reduced number of Adult Education classes . It is expected that 800 day students will have to enroll in one or more eve ning course and that an additional 300 regular students will have to take all of their classes at night. The shift to a part-day and part-night split schedules for the regular students would result from a lack of funds to employ new faculty members and to purchase classroom equipment. 3) Physical Education classes may be

scheduled on Saturday mornings. Physical education is required for all students by state law and officials said the load was becoming much too heavy in those courses to work them into regular day schedules. 4) No Adult Education clas ses for non-credit s tudents would be offe r ed in the summe r, with the whole program discontinued. 5j No Adult Education basic educational classes will be offer ed, there is a possibility that ce r tain substitute programs might be salvaged from a prospective federal grant. 6) Bus service would be discontinued and the buses disposed of by the college. 7) Fall registration time would be condensed, including a three-night registration period for any class openings left after the signup of day and extended day credit students; adults desiring 10 units or less could not be accepted after September 10. 8) No new classified employees could b e added to the staff, and no new instructors would be employed, although 19 addition a 1 instructors are needed because of the e nrollment increase. 9) A new counselor, librarian or business office assistant would not be hired. 10) The summer recreation program would be cut to $2,000 from $10,000. 11) No new curriculum program would be inaugurated. 12) The Nursing Education will not accept new students in September; the present class will continue. One Board member commented that this would be among the "tragic losses" of the cutbacks due to the continuous need for graduate nurses in the area. The tentative budget will be further developed in details and submitted as a preliminary budget at the June Board meeting. In July, after Board approval, the budget will be published prior to a public hearing in August. Officials said the cutbacks were the result of generally higher operational costs due to enrollment. Current enrollment in the spring

semester includes 2,253 day students, 1,916 regular evening students, 1,399 Adult Education students and 36 Navy and Marine Corps men in a special military- sponsored degree program and paid for by the fede r al government.

Panel discussion concludes that civil disobedience of law justifiable Civil disobedience is both justifiable and necessary in an organized society was the conclusion reached Wednesday in a Newman Club panel discussion. About 30 persons attended the discussion on the conscious commission of illegal acts which found little disagreement among panel members or the audience. Richard Peacock, advisor of the Peace and Freedom Club, and Larry Moffet, a Peace and Freedom Club m e mber, occupied one side of the stage with Reverend Geoffrey Br idges, Newman Club advisor, and Larry McCloud, Newman Club member, on the other . Father G e offrey suggested that progress should come from within the framework of the established modes of change . He pointed out that civil disobedience is not strange to American government, but it is a vital part of it. All agreed, but Moffet added that after these means have failed, there is nothing left to do but go outside the establishment or laws of the land. Peacock warned that the era of nonviolent civil di s obedience may be coming to an end in t he field of civil rights . Although he dis a vowed advocacy of violence, Peacock said he can easily under-

stand why militant blacks feel that white America is not being affected by Dr. Martin Luther King' s brand of protest.

important, vital part. Three key terms help describe what Brecht tried to do: historlftcation, alienation and epic theatre. Brecht's. concept was that his theatre was more like the epic poem than it was the conventional drama. The utilities are soundly violated, Aristotelian structure is ignored and suspence is disposed of by informing the audience in advance what they are going to see. To Brecht the ultimate effect of drama should occur outside the theatre . The play should sti r the spectator's thoughts and incite him to act for desirable social reform . This was Brecht's purpose and the purpose of his theatre. "Mother Courage" has been presented twice in San Diego, but this is the work's first presentation in North County. Weekend performances will be tonight and tomorrow at 8 p.m., and a matinee tomorrow at 2 p.m. Threeperformances are scheduled for Thursday, Friday and Saturday evenings next week with a matinee next Saturday in the P-33 drama lab. Admission is 75 cents with an ASB card and $1.50 for all others.
